What are you going to do? Throw away your Caracara crown and now become the KING of Red-shouldered hawks, or, wear TWO crowns? (I'd go with the two crown option, it's way cooler!) :lol:

Very well done
, that is a very impressive shot, it's almost as though you are up in the air with it.

Beautiful. I have a couple great photographs of them but so far... none in flight. I wish we lived a bit closer to you. It would be fun to go to some of your favorite locations. We've quite a bit farther north: Gainesville, FL. We do get down to the Sarasota area fairly frequently and our youngest son lives in Clearwater so we're down there as well.

Anyway, I really like both photographs. It is amazing how your 1D X Mark ll kept the focus as he/she flew behind those branches.

Super, super, Bob. Excellent visual on how they got their name. Your reflexes/tracking skills have to be top-notch!

why thanks. I would like to think I'm getting the hang of this but sometimes the critters and conditions just sync up
